On November 14, 2008 the Alexander family received Sierra, an assistance dog in training from the Dog with Wings program. On July 21, 2009 DWW decided to release her from the program and offer her to us. We have accepted.
Tomorrow is Sierra's surgery day. She is pretty nervous about it so we introduced her early to her cone that she will have to wear. I think we made it worse. But she looks really cute so that's a bonus!
We had a very busy Easter Weekend with lots of food and lots of company. The Easter Bunny came but she ate most of the candy she brought, which included a whole bowl of bunny shaped gummy candies. She's a very selfish Easter Bunny!
Here is baby Sierra learning to "leave it" on her head. As soon as you put the treat on her head, she completely freezes. But she soon learned she could just drop her head down and eat her treat. We're working on it...
Here is Sierra at the off-leash park with her best friend Chloe... it's just a shame that Chloe hates her. Luckily we got a picture where she wasn't trying to bite Sierra and we can pretend they get along. Chloe just doesn't like Sierra's puppy kisses.
